Hi all, just need some advise on these orange rear sights, got a set of Meprolight green/orange for my XD45c, and the rear orange seems to be very weak and pale, I expected them to be a bit dimmer than green and yellow, but these seem almost ridiculously dim. Anyone have any experience with these or similar sights? I wanted some opinions before I decided whether or not to send em back for inspection, after all, I could just be crazy :rolleyes:

Don't have that brand, but would guess about 1/2 as bright as greens. Just wondering, did you allow full time for your eyes to night vision adapt or was this just after turning off a lamp / stepping outside at night?

I have them, on my Kimber and the glow keeps my wife awake as it rests on the closet upper shelf.

The orange is dimmer than the Green, and yellow is even dimmer than orange.

Give it a couple days and see if the glow goes completely away. If who ever put them on for you broke the rear the gas will have escaped within a week of the install and they wont glow at all. If they stay the same dim brightness but glow then they are just dim.
